Oriented toward undergraduate students in public administration, this book covers important areas including; federalism, contexts of administration, organization theory, organization behavior, management, leadership, labor relations, public personnel management, budgeting, decision making, bureaucracy, and ethics and accountability. A chapter on comparative administration focusing on China, Japan, India, Great Britain, and Germany will enhance students' understanding of public administration systems in other countries. Khan incorporates current cases related to public administration so that students can use critical thinking to analyze issues and apply public administration theories.
